Finlay House

Finlay House is located on an elevated rural site in North Otago with stunning views overlooking the Waitaki Valley. Due to a geo-tec report highlighting the possibility of unstable ground, the design incorporates a lightweight steel and timber floor structure which support the house.


Designs that incorporate our clients’ ideas, yet exceed expectations.

To enjoy the outdoor aspect for as much of the year as possible, a central covered deck enables its owners to enjoy outdoor entertaining through a variety of weather and seasons.


We started with a list of features that we wished for in a house and ended up with a house that fulfilled every wish. We particularly love the fact that the quality of the design and build are immeasurably satisfying.

Steel is complimented with schist stone and cedar weatherboards, which were also used on the interior of the home to contrast the painted white surfaces.
